Slate FG-Stress Compressor

USD $149.00 (UK/EU orders incur VAT)

The FG-Stress is a digital replication of one of the industry’s most highly coveted analog compressors, the Empirical Labs Distressor.

SKU: 1246-1094 Categories: , ,



Every aspect of the Distressor has been modelled, which is no simple task due to the Distressor’s unique topology where every ratio is essentially a different compressor.

Like the hardware in which it is modelled, the FG-Stress can mimic the tone of some of the industry’s most famous compressors like punchy VCAs, fat tube compressors and even vintage opto units.
